Swift County begins mapping survey in Camp Lake Township


BENSON -- A slow process to map Swift County townships with a global positioning system will take another step forward this year.

At their meeting Tuesday, the Swift County Commissioners approved an $18,280 contract with GIS Midwest of Willmar to complete a survey of Camp Lake Township.

It will be the second township to undergo the GPS mapping in the county. The cost of the process is "why we're going slow," Auditor Byron Giese said.
